Bath Sink Faucet Supply hose too short

My new bathroom Sink Faucets come with integrated supply hoses and they are too short. It's a double sink, the one on the left is short about 10-12" and the one on the right is only short about 3". What would be the best way to connect my water supply?

For the left sink I thought about using sharkbite coupling and 10" copper tube and then the 1/4 turn valve (I am open to better ideas) but a little bit confused with what to do with the one on the right.

Yes, your house's piping is extremely low. Almost like stub-outs in a unfinished basement. I would extend the plumbing to get to a more standard height. In an exposed area underneath a sink where the pipes can get pushed and bumped I would sweat on extra pipe to get to a "normal" height. Shark/Gator Bite fittings work but they don't like strain or movement. I've had several leak when there was strain on the connection.

Sweating would be ideal but the pipe is too short for me to try to sweat. I thought about using a sharkbite valve on the bottom and use a delta supply hose like this to the existing supply hose: https://www.supplyhouse.com/Brasscra...-D-Compression
